From hot, sexy, and available to single dad, this firefighter’s life’s going up in smoke.

When Cosmir had a one-night stand all those years ago, he never dreamed that there would be consequences, but one look at small Katy’s face and he can’t deny that she’s his. His life is hectic and full of danger, but like it or not he’s now responsible for someone other than himself, and he works hard to carve out a place in his life for the adorable toddler.

Caitlyn has already felt the burn from loving a fireman once and she refuses to do it again. When a fire claims everything in her life, she’s forced to accept an offer she would have never otherwise contemplated. Moving in with Cosmir not only gives her a place to sleep — other than her brother’s couch — but she’s able to live with him rent free, in exchange for watching the enchanting little girl with the pansy colored eyes.

What starts as an arrangement of convenience turns to something more as the three spend more time together. Cosmir begins to wonder if the woman of his heart has been right under his nose the entire time, and Caitlyn realizes that sometimes you have to give love a second chance.

I enjoyed this short, sweet and fun Sci-Fi story.

I don’t normally read this genre but lately I’ve been genuinely enjoying this particular series. I loved the main characters in this story. They had great chemistry. Cosmir and Caitlyn felt the sparks from the first moment her brother introduced them, but then the romance was delayed when the sexy purple alien discovered that he’s an instant father from a long ago one night stand. I liked that right away Cosmir was so devoted to taking responsibility for his daughter and how the author let me know that he was concerned about Katy’s feelings. Later on Cosmir and Caitlyn were able to reconnect when he saves her from a fire.

This short story was sexy and entertaining. The author did a great job in bringing the characters to life and providing a bit of conflict to their relationship. They loved each other, and their little family with Katy, but there were some issues and compromises. I liked how the author involved some characters from the previous books, as well. Another aspect that I like about this story/series is how descriptive it is which helps to put a picture in my mind. It’s really great and I hope there will be more books for me to enjoy.
